In a time where America appears to be divided more than ever, it would sometimes seem as if the people as a whole have absolutely nothing in common. But the one thing that all creeds and colors can relate to is hardship. All cultures and social economic groups can feel a kinship in the reality that there is no escaping tribulation. While some focus solely on the trial, Nomis offers us an alternative. A reminder that its always darkest before the dawn. A mantra professing that our past choices and current predicaments do not define our future. A slogan we can all latch on to. "When it hurts and its doomed for disaster, Our story aint done time to write a new chapter."

Track Name: Chapters
Chorus:
Mind the storms and find the refuge/
best believe the best is yet to come/
the saga continues (3x)
Verse1:
Last time was the last time”/
is what I said repeatedly and felt/
but the last time said the same when confiding in a friend when I said I needed help/
but from last time nothing changed, trying mind over matter man I’m never beating self/
when it hurts and its doomed for disaster/
my story aint done time to write a new chapter/
I had the whole thing figured out/
never again are the canning me/
I had a dream and a plan in me/
(execute) then I’ll be providing for my family/
Im grinding while they’re lying on a canopy
the currency aint coming was I living in a fantasy?/
‘cause planning aint providing what I plan to keep/
when it hurts and its doomed for disaster/
my story aint done time to write a new chapter/
he was verbally abusive, but for some reason you went back again/
and they were gunned down for being different in this land of the free, someone tell me hows this happening/
and she was run down for just being in his path, he was trappin’ now she’s trapped in Human Trafficking/
when it hurts and its doomed for disaster/
our story aint done time to write a new chapter/

Bridge:
On and on and on and on, the beat goes (4x)

Chorus:
Mind the storms and find the refuge/
best believe the best is yet to come/
the saga continues (3x)
rest in ease the stress will test you/
best believe the best is yet to come/
the saga continues (3x)

Verse 2:
the never ending story to enlightenment/
but the problem is we liken this to negativity so naturally we aint liking it/
well yeah its bad news but I’m saying, end of the tunnel has light in it/
we’re pouring on the clovers and the sedatives/
our story isn’t over though they said it is/
trapped in this head abyss/
i’ll get ahead of this tragedy I’m Oedipus/
competitive etiquette bet it gets the best of us/
you’re on the precipice of an exodus/
when it hurts and its doomed for disaster/
our story aint done time to write a new chapter/
and I know turning the page isn’t effortless/
buried in the lesson is a triumph when he’s testing us/
a narrative to save the death of us/
but spoke through song, because he set the precedent in Ephesus/
“bless the globe with the pestilence”/
eliminate that negative that rest within the pessimist/
when it hurts and its doomed for disaster/
our story aint done time to write a new chapter/

Chorus:

rest in ease the stress will test you/
best believe the best is yet to come/
